on tuesday, handing him a narrower, but decisive win over republican rival mitt romney. here is with a look how he did it. dan henninger, and jason riley and washington columnist kim strassel. start with you, when you get a defeat like this, there's no one thing necessarily that explains it. but why don't you pick out your most important? >> look, i think there were two things key to the obama victory, one was that very ol on, they ran this very high dollar attack campaign against mitt romney, a bit of a character assassination throughout the summer and mitt romney didn't respond to it and he didn't recover from it. when you combine that with the president's brutally efficient, we now know turnout operation in core states like ohio, virginia and florida, popular vote pretty close in the end. in the end he got out the partisans in much the same numbers in 2008 and that's what won it for him. >> paul: so, kim, you're saying that's about 100 million dollars or more that the obama campaign poured on mitt romney on bain capital on his tax returns on the fact that he's a pluto kratt, and making h
side and the cultural side that conflicts with what was being offered by romney and the republican party. then you have young voters who are one in five voters. obama did surprisingly well and got a high turnout. then you have the group of educated women, all of which are growth segments. this is not just 28% less figure out that problem. they are all interrelated. there is a cultural side and a value side to this. and the difficult of addressing it has to do with the comfort level of diversity, a comfort level with immigration, how to do with the world, how to do with immigration and have to do with family and the role in society. there is a whole range of things that are part of that package. you will see a marriage equality initiatives passing in this election. >> quarter the lessons for each party from what we saw last night -- what are the lessons for each party from what we saw last night? >> the demographics are changing. this is the biggest change. the big headline is that it is 20% minority. what percent did you do have minority in your sample? i think that almost everyone
secretary carlos gutierrez, who is also an advisor to presidential candidate mitt romney. former republican presidential candidate and ambassador john huntsman. gary bauer himself, a former presidential candidate, and president of the conservative group american values. republican congresswoman cathy mcmorris rogers, a highest ranking republican woman many congress, and our own cnn senior congressional correspondent dana bash. i'm going to hand this to you. >> maybe a couple -- >> thanks, candy. >> it's great to be here with all of you. >> i would lay the blame squarely on the far right wing of the republican party. >> governor. >> no vision. without a clear vision for the future, you can't rally people of all backgrounds. >> i think that was a shot at you. >> i was going to say i think it's due at least in part to folks in our party that seem intent on attacking the fact that we're the conservative party in the united states. >> what i saw largely was a status quo election. the voters decided keep things basically the same with the republicans m majority in the house and the democrats with
in republican leadership. so that is the image right now with mitt romney not winning of the leadership of the republican party right now. is that appropriate? >> well, i don't think it's about the republican party needing to become more moderate. i really believe it's the republican party becoming more modern. and whether it's hispanics, whether it's women, whether it's young people, the republican party has to make it a priority to take our values, take our vision to every corner of this country, to every demographic group, and i am confident that we can do it. when you look at the exit polls, they were with us. for women the top issues came back to the economy and jobs, and those are the issues that were on the voters' minds, and i think it's more about the messengers and who's communicating our values to every corner in this country. >> can i just say i think that the idea of moderate and modern are -- is a difference without a distinction because in order to be modern in 21st century we cannot be extreme right. >> well, it's not about changing our values and our principles, though.
romney. let us not forget, last summer when the democrats started, we had the republican primary. in at republican primary, the talk about venture capital versus vulture capital? that came from mitt romney. who talked about being picked over by bain capital? rick perry. the talk about weathervane mentality? was that david axelrod? no, that was john huntsman. the republicans laid the groundwork f the work the democrats did. >> mark? >> yes, is there a question? >> no. >> i will respond to it and say when you win, you define the victory. that is the role of american politics. ronald reagan won a lowly landslide with no mandate in 1984. wasn't morning in america? there was a bear in the woods. walter mondale -- and he won 49 states. that is when tax reform became the centerpiece of his administration. >> ok, let's dig into the election. >> whether i have earned your vote or not, i have listened to you, i have learned from you, and you have made me a better president. >> at a time like this, we cannot risk partisan bickering. our leaders have to reach across the aisle to do the citiz
party through mitt romney under the bus. i do think he was a weak candidate, but the republicans nominated him as a behind him and insisted he was the answer to america's prayers. they did not have any choice. when you look at the other choices in the primary, who would have done a better job? herman cain? michele bachmann? jeb bush did not run. they got stuck with mitt romney. host: california has gone from a republican to a purple to a solid democratic state. what has changed? ronald reagan winning back in 1984. guest: i am proud to take a little bit of credit for that four at one time being the democratic party chair in california. the republican party is a mirror of the national republican party in the sense that i think they lost track of where the country was moving. republican registration in ronald reagan's day was 63.5% republican. today it is less than 30%. democrats did a good job of registering voters, but the republican party lost all of those people by their extreme right-wing philosophy and policies. host: pete wilson on the issue of immigration. why is that a mirr
. >>> plus, what is the future of the gop after a stinging defeat for romney and the republicans? and how will president obama govern in a second term? we will talk to a new letter elected democratic congressman, joaquin castro. plus, republican strategist steve schmidt, presidential historian, doris kearns goodwin, whip, nbc's political director and chief white house correspondent, chuck todd and the "washington post's" bob woodward. >> announcer: from nbc news in washington, the world's longest running television program this is "meet the press" with david gregory. >>> good sunday morning. the newly reelected president's message on friday, get back to work but the focus of that work and on that work is now overshadowed by friday afternoon's resignation of cia director david petraeus, which sent, as you know, shockwaves through washington. new details emerging now this weekend about the fbi investigation that led to the discovery of what officials believe was an extramarital affair between petraeus and his biographer, paula broadwell. of course, so many questions where this goes from her
romney's tuesday night. the democratic gains in the senate and house while the republicans are facing the reality of moving further and further away from the right wing ideology. if the republican party wants to survive, then the party that questions evolution is going to have to evolve and quickly. but will they double down on the message just by romney from the guy losing because he was flawed. steve, the republican from cleveland. and david author of e-book published by "news day" called "why romney lost." wow, that's one-day stuff. you always come out of the diagnosis postmortems by basically having an opportunity express your philosophy you had going in and said this proves me right. but did this election seem to be going in the wrong direction tuesday night as far as you were looking at it? did you know there was a problem? >> well, i knew there was a problem. in the month of august, the president said 42 states don't matter. we're going to concentrate on eight states, ohio being one of them. and we're going to define mitt romney. for the state like ohio, there wasn't enough tim
's right that mitt romney did get 57 million people but the trajectory for republicans is not -- the trend is not in that direction. chris: republicans know it too. we are a mixed bag ethnically. when we come back, scoops and predictions from the notebooks chris: tell me something i don't know. >> in a belated gesture of transparency, romney's going to release his tax returns. [laughter] chris: what a hoot. >> i'm joking. but i think we go back to foreign policy in the next year and i think we're going to be writing and thinking and worrying a lot about iran. chris: iran again. yeah. >> the head of the republican party is going to run again for re-election and he will win because despite the failings of the campaign, people are satisfied with him. chris: good for him. i was talking the other day, that's the next woodward biggy. >> he's already printing bumper stickers. >> rock stars get as big a kick out of flying on air force one as everybody else does. bruce springsteen getting out of the motorcade to get on the plane on monday and he looked like a kid in a candy store. chris: did you li

"romney is president." and what is next for the republicans? another piece from "the weekly standard." back to your calls. larry is on the democrats' line from ohio. caller: good morning. i think the grover norquist rule should be abandoned. we are americans. we all need to work together. republicans, democrats, and independents, this is our country. it was founded in a manner that we all live and work together. the pledge that they took on was a negative. it was not what we as the people of the united states voted for these people to do. it was something they adopted to do. it took the pledge to make president obama a1-term president. that is not something that we did. we just sent a message that was not what we wanted. this country needs to turn it around and work together. president obama and john boehner need to work out a deal. the house of representatives needs to work with a. we need to quit fighting wars on a credit card. lyndon baines johnson installed a surcharge tax to pay for the

says that the president has 74,000 more votes than mitt romney, his republican challenger. that's about 50 percent of the florida vote to romney, two to obama, and 49.1 percent to romney. >> it's veterans day, and we are honoring those who risked their lives. here's the story of two such men from palo alto. >> reporter: one night there was a big explosion. everybody rushed to the docks and a cruise ship had been torpedoed. >> herman shapiro is a world war ii veteran. he was part of the 106 infantry division. he remembers quite vividly a night when u.s. ships were attacked in the english channel. >> bodies were floating all over, and people still alive. if you didn't try your best, people were going to die. >> only 18, he became a hero that night. >> i got into a rowboat and started pulling people out. it was poorer, complete horror. >> schapiro was scared to go into battle, but he believed it was the right thing to do. >> the stories that came out of germany were terrific. being of the jewish faith, it's like it meant more to me than someone else. >> either you were a dead or alive. >>
in the night on this election is for the republican party. there are 100 million folks in this country who are black, brown, asian, hispanic, middle eastern, they voted between 70 and 90% democratic and the white vote only went by 18 points to mitt romney. john of the seven largest states in the country, illinois, new york, pennsylvania, california have gone democratic in six straight elections. the other two, ohio and florida have swung democratic in two elections. and in texas, the white folks in chief connection texas -- texas are now a minority. >>> do you think this was a split verdict? >> not at all. the president won 51.4% of the popular vote which he becomes the sixth president in history to win two terms with over 50% of the dwight eisenhower, i might add. he won an electoral college landslide. george w. bush with a much smaller electoral win pronounced he had a mandate. this president is not going to use that language, it is oh, so 20th century, not how he intends to govern. but beneath the numbers of a reelected president, a senate that is divided, there was an earthquake. it wa
to immigration issues. there is something about the dynamics of the republican party in the primaries that romney thought he could survive by positioning himself to the right and ultimately win by being as far right as possible on immigration. that is the first issue you chose not to move to the center on and did not move in the debates when he did move center on other issues. he felt he could not do it. i wonder, given christie's position in this, and cuomo's speech, that it is not a question of the science but just managing the consequences, maybe we can find a basis for acting. on the rubric of energy, there's a lot that obama wants to do on energy -- natural gas, etc., addressing climate change in the process -- it may be pragmatic in the context of this crisis and there may be movement. >> this question is for matt. as we see the latino population getting bigger, more affluent, more politically involved, and also the culturally based, normally socially conservative family, opening the gates up for everyone as long as they have equal opportunity -- if there is a legitimate latino candidate in
that if romney had won this election it would be the last national election that a republican would win under the same rules and principles. if you look at the numbers and there was a zogby poll that came out this afternoon that shows where -- how those numbers have changed over the last two or four years and they are significant. republicans have to address that when -- one way or another. i had dinner with arthur davis who outlined what he thought and his points were significant in terms of what blacks and hispanics believe or what the one. it will be of long time before the wind. >> regarding the fiscal cliff, and the economic issues. what we saw last night were that the voters voted for the status quo which is gridlock. they did not see a clear distinction between either of the party so they went with what they now and what they know is what we have seen in the last two years, is a standstill. they continue to evaluate which direction they want to go and that is what we will see in the next few weeks and in the next few years we will see what we have seen in the last two years. >> i'm cur

of love for governor romney from the republicans. guest: well, you know, in terms of the lack of love, i wouldn't say that it's specifically romney. i would say people are fed up with the republican party. that's one of the reasons the tea party movement was born, because it was frustration and anger with both parties, but especially the republican party. and so, if there's anything we've heard over the past several days since tuesday, it's that people are tired of the moderate stance of the republican party and, you know, they want true change. they want true fiscal conservatives. and so i think probably that had some impact on it. host: we're talking with amy kremer, chairman of the tea party express, about the tea party and its future, also the future. republican party moving forward. and we want to get you all involved in the conversations. the number is 202-585-3880 for democrats. 202-585-3881 for republicans. independents, 202-585-3882. theou're calling outside u.s., 585-3883. you can also reach us via social media on twitter, facebook, or even send us an email. our first call for
